About the Speaker
Director of International Trade & Diplomacy for the state of Utah, US
Mr Franz Kolb’s career began as a director for International Service at Ernst & Young, working with large international companies and organizations, advising them on international business strategies and implementation. Currently, he is Director of International Trade and Diplomacy at the Governor’s Office of Economic Development in Salt Lake City, Utah. Two things came up very prominently during my discussion with him. One was economic development and secondly, his passion for education.
